Ten days till first trip of year

Did you get one?
Best of luck! Nothing like carrying on a conversation with a nice Tom until he's nearly at your feet! Very exciting!
Good luck in Oklahoma !

Opening day in Texas was good for my wife and I. We hunt about 40 miles east of San Angelo, lots of birds..
@Fire652 doesn't matter now! Now that the monkey is off your back you can rack them up!
I agree. Kind of surreal though. Now that it is over it is a different feeling. Excited yet missing the chase again next year. Going to have to find a new one to go after. (Hopefully not a sheep as that would be expensive )
I felt that way once I got my slam, I finished with a Merriam, still had a tag in my pocket and just decided to sit at camp and have a cigar. I secretly have the sheep slam on my list but between points and saving up funds that is a long term one. I chose Deer as my next slam to chase. Right now I have a Columbian blacktail and whitetail to my name. But maybe coues this year and Sitka in 2019. Definitely gives you something to do that doesn't kill the bank.
I am going after each sheep. But do not know if I can do it more then once
Well Kentucky was good as well. Wind and rain but got er done

Glad you finally got your Rio , nice tom.

Royal slam done. Lots of days away and I think my turkey season is winding down, but what a way to get her done.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
